As a member of the small business community, we feel it’s important to spread the word about other small businesses.
Helping small businesses from retail to auto dealers is the best part of our job with Ellerhorst Russell Insurance. We try to provide customers with a level of service they don’t always get from other insurance companies. Sometimes that means getting good prices on policies, but other times it’s just helping them complete their paperwork in a way that makes it clear to them just why they’re getting coverage and how much it costs. If you just started thinking about your small business insurance renewal, give us a call at 330-527-4321 . We’ll work together to figure out what you need and get it covered in no time.
